    will only boot in Low Graphics Mode

    will only boot in Low Graphics Mode

    Hi this means the wifi doesn't work and I cant get online.
    Ive tried restarting

    the message on start up reads,

    The system is running in low graphics mode
    Your screen, graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly, You will need to configure these yourself.

    it boots fine in default graphics mode but cant use wifi *update last time I restarted the mouse wasnt visible so I couldnt boot

    luckily I just bought a raspberry Pi so can still access the web

    thanks in advance for any help

    I did an update and upgrade recently and it said something was missing and I had to do something but being a noob I didnt know what to do
    not sure if Ive restarted since then, so that may be the problem?

    Was this a new install? An update? Did it ever work right and then just quit?

    Some info on your system would be quite helpful.

    What version of 'buntu are you running?

    PSA 1000-0221

    ePSA 2000-0221 (Not used with UEFI BIOS)
    PSA System board - Interval timer Channel 0 (mode 0) is not generating interrupts.

    ePSA Timer - Interval timer not functional.
    An error occurred during the tests that may involve the main system board of the system. When a memory error is detected, try memory modules individually. When no 2000-0123 memory error occurs, and when diagnostics fail again after the BIOS is at the most current version, visit our ePSA online tool.
    • Update to the latest BIOS.
    • Reseat the CMOS battery.
    • Repeat the PSA diagnostics
    • When the diagnostics still results in an error code, visit our ePSA online tool. You can get more information on possible resolutions to your issue and even get a part dispatched if needed.
    i now get this error code on the psa so its probably not a linux issue, more a dead computer problem ?

    You still didn't give any info on your machine. Is this a laptop? If so, disconnect every cable from it after powering down. Disconnect power cable. Remove battery. Wait 10 minutes. Reassemble and try.
